NEWMARKET

Race 5 LANWADES NELL GWYN STAKES (Group 3)
No2 DIVINE LIGHT
Trainer: Charlie Appleby – Jockey: William Buick

Three unbeaten records go on the line in this interesting trial for the 1,000 Guineas. Saffron Beach and Love Is You are both two from two, but they may be usurped by DIVINE LIGHT, who pitches in for Godolphin off a single success here last autumn. The daughter of Kingman is less experienced that all nine of her foes, but can come out on top.

Race 6 No6 PORTFOLIO (Nap)
Trainer: Sir Michael Stoute – Jockey: Ryan Moore

From a stable that’s made a cracking start to the campaign, PORTFOLIO is a name to conjure with in a maiden that can throw up a high-class winner. The daughter of Deep Impact showed promise in a couple of Kempton maidens last year, but has thrived physically during her winter break, and her work on grass has been highly encouraging.

Race 7 No2 JUST FINE (Each Way)
Trainer: Sir Michael Stoute – Jockey: Ryan Moore

JUST FINE could be the answer to a race where it’s hard to draw your pen through any of the names. He showed willingness to outbattle Military Mission when opening his account at Sandown and again when making the frame in a hot nursery at York. He’s a no nonsense individual that should again be in the money.

BEVERLEY

Race 1 No1 DUSKY PRINCE
Trainer: Archie Watson – Jockey: Adam McNamara

From a stable that excels with its first-timers, DUSKY PRINCE should make his mark from what looks a good place to be in the gate. He’s been well tutored and will know too much for the bulk of these foes, making him a choice through elimination.

Race 2 No4 VINTAGE CLARETS (Nap)
Trainer: Richard Fahey – Jockey: Paul Hanagan

Radar colt VINTAGE CLARETS looks to hold the cards after finishing fourth in the Brocklesby. That form has taken a couple of knocks, but he is nevertheless going to improve a bundle after running green at Doncaster.

CHELTENHAM

Race 2 No3 THE BIG BITE (Nap)
Trainer: Tom George – Jockey: Jonathan Burke

THE BIG BITE goes into some books as being a winner without a penalty after his dramatic veer left at the end of a valuable handicap chase at Newbury last month. Beaten only two and a quarter lengths by Umbrigado, the selection has very strong form to bring to the table, while still looking to be improving.

Race 6 No7 SINGLEFARMPAYMENT
Trainer: Henry Oliver – Jockey: Adrian Heskin

SINGLEFARMPAYMENT acid much to shed his ‘rogue’ badge when scoring at Ascot. The strong traveller and sound jumper wasn’t afforded the opportunity to have time to down tools, and now has a ring of confidence to bring to the table. If waited with and delivered at the last he might put another one on the board.

Race 7 No6 HOOPER
Trainer: Nicky Henderson – Jockey: Mr Ben French Davis

Hooper’s neck defeat at the hooves of Copperless last autumn looks pretty solid in view of that rival’s unlucky defeat at Aintree. The selection has won his last two, making him a solid entity with stablemate French Crusader a horse to also include in exotics.

KEMPTON PARK

Race 1 No11 ADACE
Trainer: Mick Channon – Jockey: David Probert

ADACE didn’t enjoy the rub of the green on her Chelmsford reappearance but has come on for that outing. She has a good draw, and if obtaining a handy sit just behind the leaders can put this to bed at the business end.

Race 4 No1 RANSOM (Nap)
Trainer: Sir Michael Stoute – Jockey: Mark Crehan

I hope RANSOM, who returns from an enforced absence, is a horse worth waiting for. He looked classy when delivering on career debut at Lingfield, and having subsequently been gelded is showing real promise at home. He possesses a very striking turn of foot, which can prove a telling weapon against Torrkee and Ibiza Rocks.
